Done and done and done! Yes friends, the 281.2 mile quest is complete. As of this morning’s spin class, I have wrapped up all the mileage I needed to reach my goals for the month.
Today I was reminded why trying to do so many miles in one month has been so daunting before. The flat out fatigue can really hit you all at once.
So today was a recovery day from that long bike ride yesterday. I planned on playing some golf with my buddies as a leisurely way to pass the time while I recovered in time for tomorrow’s swim workout.
This Saturday, unlike the previous ones, I didn’t engage in a long run but instead a long bike ride. I went to the Silver Comet Trail and rode for 50 miles.
Well, I am glad I front loaded most of my training at the beginning of the month because the wear and tare is starting to show. It’s not that I didn’t want to work out this morning, it’s that my body didn’t. I had in mind to do a double session today, swim in the morning and strength train around lunch. I settled for just swimming. I had only 1 mile to go to reach my swim goal, but it might as well have been 10.
Thursday is usually a rest day for me. Since I took last Sunday off after the half marathon, I decided to work out this morning. I took it relatively easy, focusing on core strength exercises and some rowing.
Today was the first day in a while where I really did not feel like working out at all.
